In a series of workshops we designed and built a modular mobile garden which was then used in a series of events. We made five modules mostly from recycled materials. We used what we could find, mostly old wood, plastic fruit crates and pallets. The plants were grown and planted by neighbors.
Each of the five modules has its own function:
- a guerilla unit for transporting tools, materials and plants (it can turn into a table or a bench) – “reivindik-hort”
- a shade giving hanging garden – “acro-hort”
- a relaxation unit for gardening without leaving a comfortable chair (secret beer closet included) – “rojo”
- an easily waterable vertical garden – “trepa-hort”
- the troyan horse module for secret missions – “repós-hort”
The garden is designed to invade and occupy unused city plots. Every module is multi-functional and together they form a small but functional green unit. They also work as a mobile laboratory or a stage. They are used around the neighborhood to lead workshops, teach and animate people to co-create their nearest environment, they take part in social events.
